KA2 - STRATEGIC PROJECTS - Between May 5 and 8, the first of two study visits scheduled in the Edu-Action 2.0 project of international training against early school leaving was held in Tallinn, Estonia. During the visit, the participants visited different centers and institutions in a country where youth work is recognized as a university career.
Twhich is co-financed by the European Commission and coordinated by Per Esempio ONLUS. of which Mundus is a strategic partner. During this visit, youth workers and members of the entities participating in the project met to discover how youth work is regulated in Estonia, a country in which it is formally recognized.
During the visit, after a series of dynamics to get to know each other and know the context in which each participant works or collaborates, the group has gone to different places to learn the best practices in the Baltic country. Among others, they have visited the Department of Youth Labor in Estonia (ENTK), which depends on the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research. This center works to develop work policies in the field of youth and ensure the quality of people working in this field and the programs they offer.
The visit continued with a meeting at the Center for Youth Workers in Mobility, which is a public organization that is responsible, among many other functions, for working at street level, side by side with young people, to encourage their social participation and to stop school dropout, especially in those most disadvantaged neighborhoods and sectors.
In addition, the group had the opportunity to visit the University of Tallinn, in which youth work is a recognized and institutionalized career and master, something very rare in the world. There the participants were able to learn about the curricular programs of these studies, with the aim of bringing ideas back to their countries.
Finally, during the visit one of the national focus groups that are part of the project was carried out, which will be a very important part of its results.
